Meet Nick Pozderac, a 20-year-old stand-up comic from Denton. He writes and perfects most of his material in his apartment bedroom, proving that creativity doesn’t require a formal space to flourish. Whether he’s recording himself telling jokes on his computer or scribbling ideas onto one of his many notepads, most of his creative energy is harnessed in this bedroom. The posters of John Belushi and little kittens give you an idea of quirky comedic influences. Art&Seek’s Holly Fetter interviewed and shot Pozderac for the studio-tour video above (for outtakes from that shoot, visit our blog); if you like what you see, check him our Saturday night in Denton. And for more of our studio tours with local artists, visit our Artist Spaces page.
Now, here’s more with Nick:
Medium: My mind and various notebooks
Number of years in this space: This is my first apartment, and I’ll have been here a year in August. And I’ll be here at least another year, staring at the brick wall that is my view.
What do you enjoy most about working here? I like working in my bedroom, because if I have a weird idea in the night I can go to my desk and write it down. Also, I can pace in my little pacing area by my bed. For all my life I have shared a room with my brother, and I love that this space is entirely my own. I really love the way it’s organized and decorated right now – I have everything the way I want it, and I feel like I really fit in this room.
How would you improve it if you could? I just improved it by rearranging my furniture last week, and the only thing that could make it better is if it was a bigger space.
